Argentina National Team Triumphs over Australia in Friendly Match
In a friendly match against Australia, the Argentine National Team emerged victorious, securing a resounding victory over their opponents. After the intense game, Lionel Messi and his teammates from La Scaloneta took a moment to show their appreciation for the fans who had gathered at the Beijing Workers’ Stadium. However, an incident involving an Australian player caught everyone’s attention.
As Messi and his teammates made their way towards the stands, player number 21, Robertson, followed closely behind the Argentine captain, hoping to obtain his jersey. Despite his efforts, the 20-year-old Manchester City player went unnoticed by Messi, who was admittedly preoccupied with greeting his fellow players.
Eventually, the determined Robertson gave up on his quest to acquire the coveted shirt from the football superstar.
Lionel Messi Sets a New Career Record
During the match, La Scaloneta managed to score two goals. The first goal was swiftly achieved within the opening minutes of the first half, and the second goal was netted during additional time. Notably, Lionel Messi scored the first goal and unwittingly broke a record.
This goal, accomplished merely 21 seconds into the friendly match against Australia, marked the fastest goal of Messi’s illustrious career. The play began with Enzo Fernández pressuring the Australian midfielder from behind, successfully regaining possession. Fernández then passed the ball to Messi, who expertly controlled it with his left foot and evaded two Australian defenders before calmly slotting it past goalkeeper Mathew Ryan’s right post.
The second goal, scored by Germán Pezzela in the 23rd minute of the second half, solidified Argentina’s victory over their opponents.
